Welcome to our new and improved website Bentley Bulldogs! The website is only one facet of the many wonderful things we have to be excited about in the Bentley School District. One of the developments we are most thrilled by is the high school’s receipt of the competitive whole-school technology grant, providing every high school student with an iPad. The integration of iPad technology into every high school classroom is elevating the level of engagement and facilitating learning in a technologically advanced environment.
To support the successful implementation of our district technology plan and district improvement plan, every teacher in our district is engaged in deep, meaningful professional learning focused on the integration of technology in the classroom made possible through additional grant dollars secured over the course of the last two years.
Barhitte Elementary and Bentley Middle school are now designated as school-wide Title I buildings, which means we can use grant monies to provide supplemental programs for all students. We are partnering with the GISD to implement a district-wide multi-tiered system of support within each building designed to systematically intervene and address each individual student's academic and social needs. The goal is to supplement areas of weakness and celebrate and expand upon areas of strength for every learner. Targeted intervention strategies will be utilized to close and eliminate mathematic and literacy gaps at every level.
Our community is behind our school district! This fall the voters approved a 3 mil bond with identified projects supporting substantial improvements in the safety and security of our students in each building. Additionally, the learning environment in each building will be improved upon greatly through general fund dollars allocated to improving the resources in the classroom because they won’t have to be allocated to desperately needed infrastructure and fixed asset repairs and replacement due to the funds generated by the bond.
The Bentley Community Schools learning community is working diligently to implement processes and programming that meet every student’s individual needs so that our students can reach the highest levels of academic and personal success. We are making great strides toward our goal of being the “Best Little District in Genesee County” by focusing on school improvement initiatives aligned to AdvancEd district accreditation standards and through intentional focus on the partnership between home and school. We take pride in our student successes and in our greater learning community while we honor Bentley’s rich history and look to the future with anticipation for great things to come.
